Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Donna gets it

As per recent forum recommendations I've been listening to 06/2/74 - and a fine show it is indeed. And there's a rather sweet moment on it that might pass you by. The boys are hitting a relaxed groove as they take Scarlet Begonias into its final stretches. Then, around the 4.20 mark, Donna comes in with her now legendary impersonation of a lonesome coyote on heat. Having no visual record of events we can but surmise what happens next. I imagine Jerry nods to Ramrod in the wings who Ninja-like swoops on stage and throttles Donna into silence on the 4.42 mark. She is heard from no more and the boys take the song to its unhurried and stately conclusion. Just listen - and you'll hear it.

my quintessential Scarlet Begonias includes Donna singing and of course, Looks Like Rain.
But a funny story anyway

Either that or Jerry, seeming to hitting the Wah peddle, actually activates a trap door directly under Donna, causing her to plummet into a cage filled with rabid lemmings. The resulting screeches go unnoticed by the crowd as they appear to be just another regular performance.

Ah yes, a plausible scenario, Dr Hollow. But after the strangled yelp at 4.42 there are no more screeches to be heard. I fear the lemmings went hungry that night.

I think you may have a point there. Having been lucky enough to actually hear a schizophrenic mongoose on meth run over by a cement mixer, the sound is eerily familiar. I can see as how having your larynx crushed by Ramrod could product a similar octave range.

Maybe Jerry just puts his converse in Donna's mouth.

Stop right there. At least until after lunch.
